Quoted by:


"That's why identification methods that look for intra-individual differences--- comparing a child's oral-language and printed-language skills, for example---are more likely to catch talented students with a learning disability than other methods that compare students' performance with benchmarks for normally achieving peers."


--American Psychological Association, PEGY in the United Kingdom


"look at the child's academic record.  One of the clear ways in which gifted children differ from other children is the ease and speed with which they master academic skills.  Gifted and talented students will be ones who finish their work early and easily understand their grade level-curriculum. They may do exceptionally well on projects or other open-ended assignments.
